"The first sine-scroller on a HAM picture". But the HAM picture alone was worth the watch! ;-)

You should know that it is of course technically impossible make a scroller over a HAM-picture. I love impossible effects.

Pretty tacky picture by the way... Reflects the mind of the coder, I suspect.

Heh, I remember this, but for some reason I think I got it confused years later with 'Mona Lisa was a Man' ... Anyway. Impossible FX rule, yes (:

My first computer was an Atari ST and _every_ ST demo featured "impossible" effects (such as e.g. sync- or parallax-scrolling, "fullscreen", sampled soundseffects, ..)!
So I was quite used to impossible kind of stuff when I moved to the Amiga.

parapete: The scroller says something like "only sprites makes it possible", ; )

I made this effect by multiplexing sprites, it was my first real demo (although I had made some unreleased shit before). I think I had just a couple of HAM pictures to choose from, one was a scan of some classic oilpainting then this, and then some -- let's say less 'tasteful' pictures of girls ;-) I remember spending a day to re-invent the bubblesort algorithm (I never had the need to sort numbers before) to figure out which order to re-use the sprites in. Of course I later joined Andromeda and made some better demos (Point Blank) and some re-used code like fast circle drawer, trackloader etc.

Heh. nice to see the original coder commenting here. :D Point Blank is a very cool demo as well! :)
